Description
The Wide Field Imager (WFI) is an upgrade of the Wide Field Imager (WFI) of the CBERS-1 and 2 satellites. Brazilian participation in this program will be enlarged up to 50%, thus taking Brazil to a condition of equality with its partner. CBERS-3 is expected to be launched in 2009, CBERS-4 in 2011. CBERS-3 and 4 satellites represent an evolution of CBERS-1 and 2.
